restaurant catering table

Following the widely shared news of a dine-and-dash incident caught on CCTV by management of St Julian’s eatery Crust last week, another restaurateur has come forward and shared that his establishment has also fallen victim to a similar incident.

Writing in the popular Facebook group Expats Malta, Paolo Carcone, co-owner of L’Ostricaio Paceville reported that a “group of freeloaders” who visited the restaurant “and are now becoming sadly famous on the island” left the table after eating a full meal without paying their bill:

“Last night four people arrived, aged around thirty, asking to be seated outside at a peripheral table, then another two were added and they happily ordered and consumed, chatting with the staff and showing (at least some of them) an evident Italian Neapolitan accent.”

Similar to the case shared by Sean Gravina, owner of Crust restaurant, who shared the footage of a group of Italian “dine and dashers”, Mr Carcone stresses that the some of the men seated at the table also had an Italian accent, adding that he unfortunately has no CCTV footage of the incident as the table chosen by the patrons was out if the camera’s range.

“Suddenly they got up and literally ran away, leaving staff and guests dumbfounded and unable to stop them.

“Ofcourse we will also file a complaint, in the hope that these champions of the ‘midnight escape’ can be identified and justly punished.”
